i hit a bump and knocked a hole in the oil pan

I have a friend that is homeless at the moment and he is living in his car on the streets of Los Angeles/Hollywood areas in a 1994 C280 Mercedes-Benz.

The price of a new radiator seems reasonable and affordable for the both of us but how much would it cost to have it installed by a mechanic though. Please email me directly at
